We are very pleased to report that Meet Your Muslim Neighbours has started a Foodbank for the homeless at Masjid Tawhid. This important project is currently in pilot, and a first session was held in December 2013. The aim is to run this event every 4-6 weeks in shaa' Allaah, with the next session planned for April.

At the previous session we had a turnout of about 40 people. Hot home made food was prepared, and about 8 volunteers helped provide the service. MYMN is working along with other local charities to contact local homeless people, and the service is open to all - Muslims and non-Muslims.

Masjid Al Tawhid are pleased and proud to announce that we, by the grace of Allah, raised £12,200.47 for our recent Sisters' Bazaar held on 9th February 2014 in association with Ummah Welfare Trust.

Masjid al-Tawhid is pleased to announce that the renowned scholar Shaykh Sa'd al-Shithree will lead the ishaa prayer today Friday 8th November 2013 in shaa' Allah.

The first of Muharram was Tuesday 5th November 2013, so the 10th of Muharram will be Thursday 14th November 2013.

We are encouraged to fast the 10th of Muharram (Aashooraa') along with either the 9th or 11th in order to commemorate the day that Musa (alayhi as-salaam) was saved from Pharoah and his army.

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Madinah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of 'Ashura'. He said, 'What is this?' They said, 'This is a righteous day, it is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemies, so Musa fasted on this day.' He said, 'We have more right to Musa than you,' so he fasted on that day and commanded [the Muslims] to fast on that day." [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1865] 

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said: "I never saw the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of 'Ashura', and this month, meaning Ramadhan." [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1867]

 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "For fasting the day of 'Ashura', I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before." [Reported by Muslim, 1976]

May Allaah enable us to earn the reward of this important fast.
